Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2013
Did this as a side trip on a JMT thru hike that included lots of extra peaks. Decided to climb it spur of the moment after seeing it in person (how could you not?!?). Approach via 1000 Island Lakes. Took a slightly different route down that got into some (not so fun) class 4 down climbing. Wish I had time to do Ritter too. Next time...

Successful second attempt two years after failed first. Following climb of Ritter the previous day, this was supposed to be easier, but the couloir leading to the saddle is STEEP. Talus hop and class 3 climbing to summit were tiring, but the views were incredible. Perfect weather made it that much more memorable. Descending the couloir in soft snow entailed some tense moments, but everyone cleared it safely. Hiked back out to Agnew Meadows the same afternoon.

Came from Lake Ediza route. Snow was sparse, but ice axe and crampons were necessary to get to the saddle; the chute coming back from the saddle was very icy and not a fun descent.

Sierra Challenge 2012 Day 2. Climbed with a largish group in a long day from Agnew Meadow. Thunder echoes well over the glacier.

Climbed from RB saddle with Sierra Mountaineering Group. 1000 feet of talus and scrambling wasn't as bad as the photo makes it appear. Spectacular summit and view!

Climbed with Justing on a clear summer day. Started from Garnet Lake. Longer route than we expected, but great views. Descended R/B saddle and traversed back to Garnet with a full moon.

Got within about 700 vert feet of the top, but still had a great time and an interesting mountain rescue experience on the way back. Read about that here: http://www.summitpost.org/ordeal-on-mt-ritter/734852
